Episode 275: End

By CBI

Comic books matter.

They inspire, in young and old, not just a sense of wonder and imagination, but of a world where each of us has it in our body and spirit to make a difference. To help those who need it most. To be better people.

They foster communication, debate, criticism, and praise.

They create communities.

And when one feels lost in a sea of indifference and apathy, they bring a knowing smile from the person seated opposite you on the train, as they watch you read the latest issue of a favourite series.

They encourage intellectual growth, and in young readers, instil not just an appreciation of art, but also of the written word.

They create readers… and writers.

They are our gateway drug into novels, that we may teach our young the beauty of literature.

They are our mythology. They show us the best in humanity… and the worst.

They are important. And they matter.

Thank you all so much for listening to us discuss, debate, criticism, and praise, for six years. It has been our pleasure.

    I think you guys hit the nail on the head with your assessment of the bigger publisher’s attitude towards diversity. I really hope that one of these day’s they recognize the diversity around them and embrace it.

    I’m sorry to see your show end, but thanks for the great run, the time you’ve put in to it and for sharing your passion for the art that is comic books.
